Tasted on 6/11/14 from a capped 500mL bottle purchased at Bangor Wine and Cheese. Pours clear, very dark ruby red with a thin off-white head that leaves a thin collar. The nose is honeyed with blackberry, a hint of spicy clove, and just a touch of caramelized orange peel. The flavor is nicely dry, with the blackberry, clove, and lightly bitter orange peel all blending nicely with the honey. The body is medium with average, fizzy carbonation and a long finish that encompasses all of the above.

I really enjoyed this. Pours a dark crimson. Aromas of tart blackberry, cinnamon and clove, as well as citrus. All the ingredients sing in this. Really great sour, sweet, spiced flavours. I think this is great. Smooth and very easy to drink.

500ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Huge clove aroma from a distance, closer up there’s a tonne of honey. Dark, but flat. Flat and sweet in the mouth. Total freaking blackberry overload in the taste, but the clove is close behind. Almost numbing clove to be honest. Sweet and flat, and berry overload. Quirky, but I so much prefer the Polish/Lithunian/English meads.

Marduk (3544) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 4, 2015
500ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Dark deep blue color. Small size, blueish head, stays as a ring. Massive clove, x-mas spices, blackberries, honey, sweet notes in aroma. Blackberry, clove, juicy, sweet in taste. Juicy blackberry and cloves in aftertaste. Juicy.

teddybeer (2533) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 4, 2015
Reddish color with a minimal and quickly diminishing head. Aroma has notes of cherries and slightly orange. Flavor is fruity with cherries and berries notes, vinous character with some smokyness. Slightly sweet final.

tchaos (264) - Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2015
500ml bottle. Aroma of heavy spice in the dark red pour. Taste is a good mix of clove, orange, Berry, and honey. Reminds me of a mulled wine.

jahshuwuh (479) - USA - MAR 14, 2015
A dark red wine color, no head. Smells as you would expect, blackberry, orange zest, clove, honey, wax. Light sweet red wine tastes, blackberry, honey. Dry, finishes like a red wine. A decent light mead to have with dinner or after for dessert. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerman6686 (5094) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2015
This poured a dark red to purple with a pinkish head. Aroma was of blackberries, light honey and some spice. Flavor similar, more blackberry forward, pushing on the lines of alcopop but refreshing.

Kind of tastes like grape juice. Pours cranberry reddish color almost black. No head. Very fruity. Aroma of blackberry. I like. Poured from draft at Mellow Mushroom in Alabama - part of a flight.
